It was a brisk morning in September as I walked to school with my lunch in hand. Entering my office I remembered that the person who had used this office before me often placed her lunch on the wide outside ledge to keep it cool. So I placed my fruit and sandwich outside, closed the window and began work. About half way through the morning I heard a tapping at my second floor window. I turned to see a giant crow pecking at my lunch. As I rose from the chair to make him leave, he took flight alright but with my sandwich in his beak. I was surprised that a crow could actually do this. If I had expected it, I would have walked to the end of the hall and placed my lunch safely in a refrigerator.
